Interning at a MM and unsure if they'll drug test. The internship is now a virtual mentorship series and obviously there's a global pandemic. Are firms still making interns take drug tests? Were they even drug testing before the pandemic? It seems like a waste of time and resources to test for weed but would love to hear what format your internship was changed to and if you were drug tested.
Searched through the forum but seems like drug test discussions are mostly focused in US offices.
Does anyone know if BB IBD Hong Kong offices perform drug tests (weed specifically) on new hires of summer analysts and analysts? Thanks ahead for any insights.
I have a contingent offer (including pre-employment drug test) for a corporate banking summer analyst internship. I reached out to HR and was told onboarding will be April/May. Is it safe to say the drug test will be at the same time as onboarding, then?
I recently signed a FT offer from an EB in a state where recreational weed is legal. I have nothing in my system but don't know whether my drug test will occur soon or in the months leading up to my start date next summer.
Can someone please describe the drug screening process of incoming summer analysts? There have been previous posts, however, I figured they are outdated as summer recruiting is always getting pushed up. Answers have been all over the place. I've heard December, 1 month before start, or anytime before you start...
Wondering if anyone received the background check/drug test after FT training started. (for regular M&A IB) I start in a few days, have received my signing bonus, sent in payroll and W-4 forms, etc. But somehow they never sent me any release for background or drug check.
I sent HR an email inquiring about it, but they ignored it. I just don't want to pester them again for fear of it looking extra sus.
Hey WSO - Another dreaded drug test post:
Passed a drug screen two months ago as part of a standard pre employment background check. Start in about a week. Am I correct in thinking that it is highly unlikely that they'd perform another screen on-site during the first week/orientation?
I have been going through the interview process for William Blair's summer internship Program (specifically PWM in Chicago) and just thought about the possibility of being drug tested. I may have a second interview in a couple weeks and was wondering if they could drug test before sending out offers (not just before starting the internship). I did use marijuana 2 weeks ago so I guess I'd just like to know if I need to start "detoxing" heavily now if they could test me before going back to school after Winter break. Thanks for any insight!
Recently accepted an offer at a bulge bracket in NYC for next summer, and I wanted to find out if they drug test. Does anyone know which bulges drug test their incoming interns and which don't? PM me if you wanna know which one I'm referencing specifically.
